Tesla has issue a voluntary recall for a faulty parking brake that could remain engaged, and that could affect up to 53 000 vehicles.
The defect could affect the electric parking brakes on the Model S and Model X cars built between February and October 2016. TO date, no injuries have been reported as a result of the fault, which is thought to affect about 5% of the recalled vehicles.
Tesla wrote to customers about the defect and invited them to bring their cars in for a fix that should take no more than 45 minutes to effect.
“We do not believe this issue could ever lead to a safety concern for our customers, and we have not seen a single accident or injury relating to it. However, in order to be overly cautious, we are going to be proactively replacing these parts to ensure that no issues arise,” the company states.
